Now and then it's good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.
The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phrase; if you pursue happiness you'll never find it.
Charles Percy Snow
Happiness is a how, not a what; a talent, not an object.
The really happy man never laughs—seldom—though he may smile. He does not need to laugh, for laughter, like weeping is a relief of mental tension—and the happy are not over strung.
Prof. F. A. P. Aveling
You may think that you need a particular other person to be complete, or a specific job to be successful, or some other emotional or physical gratification to be happy. That is when you may wish to notice that you are here, right now, without it. Why, then, do you think you need it? Close examination will reveal that you do not need it, not even to be happy.
The irony is that when you move into happiness with or without that person or situation that you imagine you needed, you put yourself in a much better position to attract that person or situation. That is because happiness attracts. It is like a magnet. It is the highest energy, next to love. Indeed, happiness is love, felt. The trick, then, is to be happy before you have what you think you need in order to be happy. Do not wait until after you receive it—or you may never receive it.
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
If only we'd stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time.
Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date.
Why trudge through the sludge or hack your way through a tangled maze if it's possible to walk around? Happiness can often be increased by avoiding the unnecessary.
Duane Alan Hahn
The place to be happy is here, the time to be happy is now.
Whatever you choose for yourself, give to another. If you choose to be happy, cause another to be happy. If you choose to be prosperous, cause another to prosper. If you choose more love in your life, cause another to have more love in theirs.
God from Conversations with God (Book 3) through Neale Donald Walsch
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
The stoical scheme of supplying our wants by lopping off our desires, is like cutting off our feet when we want shoes.
We must select the illusion which appeals to our temperament, and embrace it with passion, if we want to be happy.
No man is happy without a delusion of some kind. Delusions are as necessary to our happiness as realities.
Christian Nevell Bovee
Dedicate yourself to the good you deserve and desire for yourself. Give yourself peace of mind. You deserve to be happy. You deserve delight.
Mark Victor Hansen
When what we are is what we want to be, that's happiness.
Malcolm S. Forbes
Enjoy everything. Need nothing.
God from Conversations with God (Book 2) through Neale Donald Walsch
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
